My birthday is coming up, and my friends are asking questions. I probably will want to hit a steakhouse or one of Denver's few decent red-sauce joints.

But let's see...
Filet mignon with a mushroom sauce.
Broccoli with garlic butter
Vodka rigatoni (for the "starch")

And peanut butter chocolate creme brulee - there is a restaurant near here that has it, and it is my all-time favorite dessert. It just doesn't have the rest of those items.

This is what the family makes me for dinner at home. If we go out, it's Asian or Greek.
Sounds magical.

Have to go with my traditional birthday lunch "out" with my father: Seafood stew (oysters, shrimp & dungeness crab) and strawberry sundaes.

Haven't had one in years, though.

Am I a lucky cuss, or what?

Waht would be your favorite meal???

Certified "Lucky Cuss", IMO.

My favorite dinner? Yours is close.

I'll say this. I do not want to cook it. I do not want a member of my family to cook it. I want to go out to a place where professional people cook it and serve it.

Favorite? Depends upon the year. Good ethnic food always rocks. So does local food.

When I spend my B'day in FLA - my birthday cake is always Key Lime Pie, which was invented by God himself.

Perfectly seared scallops (jumbo), some mussels and oysters and clams in a white wine/butter/garlic sauce.

Loaded baked potato

Cherry pie for dessert...ala mode, of course!
